Personal profile

Personal profile

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics.

Research Interests

variance reduction
robust prediction methods
generalized linear models
post shock forecasting 

Professional Information

I am very interested in developing useful statistical methodology for practitioners in a variety of scientific and industrial fields. I am particularly interested in the tradeoffs between robustness and efficiency in estimation.

I am interested in a wide variety of disciplines within Statistics. These include, but are not limited to, maximum likelihood estimation, exponential family theory, generalized linear models, model averaging, envelope methodology, conformal prediction, causal inference, bootstrap techniques, and multivariate statistics.

UIUC Statistics graduate students are encouraged to reach out to me if you are looking for research opportunities. I currently have several methodological and programming projects in robust efficient prediction methods, variance reduction for estimation of vector-valued parameters, post shock prediction, and baseball.
